It is a good thing to write out your routine on the care and feeding of all animals on the farm at this time. Keep in mind that pictures with names attached and barn stall layout of who belongs in what stalls should also be included. Get a list of names of people that could help tend your herd if something like getting ill put everyone on the farm too sick or hospitalized to run the farm's feeding and watering. Keep in mind that whoever may end up helping may have no experience at all with livestock so even simple things like saying to throw hay in and make sure there is clean water until farm help can arrive will help. The goal is to keep all animals fed and watered during the crisis. Until the owner is well or the animals moved to other farms or hauled in rather than starved to death. It is good to have a buddy system to check in every few days if a person starts to feel ill. With the Covid you can go from strong enough to lift a bale of hay to not strong enough to get up in hours. If you feel it coming on I advise to not let the dehydration take you down. Sipping electrolytes and even Cola helps along with things like Tussin. However once you get to weak if things go bad you would need to be admitted asap. I advise putting the list by your door with the farm instructions or in the barn with a a note in the house by the door that says you own livestock who would need helped if you are sick. Take Care Everyone. We will get through this.
Excellent reminder! My mom always had a very detailed list for us when she would need one of us to do chores after we had moved out on our own and were no longer familiar with her routine. Goats are definitely creatures of habit and are used to being milked in a certain order, fed from a certain pan/feeder, etc. so mine used to get freaked out if someone tried to change their routine when "helping" me with chores.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I know this forum hasn't been active for a while, but I still check in on a regular basis to see if there are any needs to be addressed.
